right of the party, or as he is now, according to bill clinton, mr. moderate mitt, that we haven't seen it for a few months. >> well, first of all, i couldn't hear it very well, i assume it is referring to the des moines register. but are there piles of legislation sitting in congress that he is going to point to? the des moines register editorial board? the fact is, he is and has always been committed to being a pro-life president. he is committed to the fact that he will not fund planned parenthood to fund abortions. and committed to not sending foreign aid to countries to fund abortion. he is a pro life president, he is proud of it. and i just think -- i just think many are taking it, referring to one sound bite, piles of legislation, sitting in congress. and it is much ado about nothing, this election is about the economy, the president has not performed. he is chasing every rabbit down the trail to make this thing about his own record, and the miserable condition of the economy. and that is what we'll talk about. >> but isn't the problem? it comes down to trust, and therefore, we h
's bill clinton in nevada today taking on mitt romney. clinton's message is clear. is it enough to keep obama in office? let's bring back my political all-stars. charles, when you hear bill clinton, isn't this one of the problems for barack obama? bill clinton is ten times as passionate and aggressive going after mitt romney than the president seems to want to be right now. it's not helpful to him, i don't think. people are like we would vote for clinton but why isn't the president doing this? >> i think that on the stump you get a much more passionate barack obama. i think that what people are kind of dumbfounded by is what happened at the debate because the person that you see on the stump, the person who gave a speech, all the speeches in '08, the person who gave the speech at the convention, that person was not necessarily the same obama that was at the debate and whether that was a strategic decision to seem more presidential or whatever, whatever the calculation was, it was just hard to square with the obama on the stump. >> i think the obama campaign are just off the point. look
a senator when paul ryan was three years old. let's play a clip from bill clinton. this was from last night. i think he hit the nail on the head. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than most people did. i thought -- wow, here is old moderate mitt. where you been boy, i missed you these last two years. >> it is fascinating. flopping all over the place. your head could spin. the candidates are having so much fun. does it almost play against him? that people watch clinton being all of the thing that is we didn't see of the president, could it hurt him? i was thinking about barack obama during the last debate. i think the contrast is not a good one. however, we should never underestimate the fact that he is a hugely powerful barack obama fan. >> we had an interesting discussion about the libya situation. extraordinary comments. it is nothing to do with the republicans anymore. this is to do with how the white house, how the ambassadors dealt with this and it seems not good enough to me that you can put out erroneous statements five days after a terrorist attack. >> the point is
in office, you know, with bill clinton and george bush and to spend all of this time with george bush at camp david and to do horseshoe throwing, skeet and trap shooting, to sit in the oval office and to listen to his meetings -- >> amazing moments for a guy from -- an unknown kid from austria. >> it's unbelievable, that ride. and the book also deals with the determination and the fanaticism and the competitiveness. and always keeping the eye on the ball. and i even have -- you know, the 15 arnold rules and everything that helped me get through and to get to where i am today. so that is what the book is about. >> whatever you've done in your life, when you've wanted something badly enough, you've tended to get there. you clearly would like to repair your marriage, as you said, to the one and only love of your life really. if maria is watching this, and she might well be watching this, what would you say to her? >> i'd just say sorry for what i've done, you know, and i want to win her back and to hope, even though she talks about forgive ofneness forgiveness, that she really can forgiv
but romney says the numbers aren't nearly good enough. joining me is former clinton press secretary, dee dee myers and republican strategist, john bravender. john, let me start with you. presumably all republicans are feeling a surge of great excitement following the debate. how much has that been dissipated by what are undeniably very good jobs figures today? >> first of all, i guess i would argue that they are as good as either you're saying or particularly that obama is saying. if you look at the adjusted numbers for july and august, actually the new numbers aren't any better than that. if you look, the only reason that unemployment is going down is they're taking more and more people who have basically given up or are underemployed out of the equation and so what has happened is we're now starting to accept and get excitement over mediocrity. but i will say this. the good news for the president is we're discussing the job numbers today and whether they're good, bad or whatever rather than his debate performance. i think that's actually good for obama. >> there are too many middle class f
an elevator stack them, yeah, i guess he was. >> bill clinton taking a shot at mitt romney today. fair to say the campaign is getting ever dirtier as election day approaches. bring back my all-star team. i thought it was a very interesting part of the debate last night which i thought was one of the reasons i gave the win to biden, was the exchange over the stimulus money, particularly in the state of wisconsin. let's have a look at this clip. >> he sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know why he -- >> you did ask for stimulus money. >> sure he did. >> on two occasions we advocated for constituents who were applying for grants. that's what we do. >> there were claims in the huffington post tonight that it may have been as many as four requests. i thought he got him there. kristen, what did you think of that moment? it was a difficult moment for your guy. >> it made me a little nervous as the moment started but paul ryan handled it well. it's routine when a constituent is appl
